Anyone who knows me, knows I love to travel. So when my wonderful friends Marina and Tris announced they were having a destination wedding in Maine, and they wanted me to photograph it, I was ecstatic. I’ve known Tris and Marina for a long time, meeting both separately at NYU and seeing their relationship blossom over the years has been really fun to watch. It was equally as fun to hear about their wedding plans and all the DIY effort they were putting into it.
The morning of the wedding, Ashley and I went to scope out the ceremony space at Fort William Henry. It was raining. Being that Marina had planned for an outdoor wedding, and the fact that this space was just too perfect, we both crossed our fingers for the rain to break. Eventually, it did. Actually, very much in time for us to do amazing first look photos atop the fort.
As the ceremony began, a bagpiper greeted guests. I have no idea where they found a bagpiper in this sleepy Maine town, but they did. And it was awesome. The ceremony was very personal and sweet. Very Tris and Marina. After the vows, the bagpiper led the bridal party and guests on a short walk to the Content Sole Restaurant, where we were greeted with an oyster bar and champagne. Nice.
True to Marina and Tris form, they put on a great party. A DJ spun their favorite tunes all night, including there very aptly fitting first dance song “Could you Be Loved” by Bob Marley. Followed by a lot of fun Greek-style dances to celebrate Marina’s heritage.
Congrats Marina and Tris. You two are the perfect couple and we couldn’t be happier for you!
